Guelph, Ont.; Cambridge University (England), 1956; diagnostic radiology. Died April 6, 2020, aged 89. Survived by his wife Cheryl, 4 children, 5 stepchildren, 5 grandchildren and 4 step-grandchildren. “Shortly after arriving in Canada, Brian realized he was getting too involved in patients’ personal problems and would be better off at arm’s length. This meant radiology or pathology. He preferred the living to the dead . . . so radiology was the choice. He was accepted into the Toronto General Hospital program in 1958, and in 1962 he joined the Radiology Department in Galt, Ont., now part of Cambridge. During his career Brian was a pioneer in diagnostic ultrasound, which he brought to the Cambridge Hospital in 1975. This was the first non-teaching hospital in Canada to have ultrasound. His medical career included work in public and private practice in Canada, Saudi Arabia and the United Kingdom.”
